Hi Voyager,


I think your new build of LOYAL MODERATOR is a more than adequate replacement for her sold ancestor.

I am absolutely convinced that your rebuild will be miles better when once finished then the regretted loss.

So no time for regrets anymore. :-))   


It's looking that way so far fingers crossed. At last my tormented mind can take a well earned rest  :-)

Thanks DickyD, Tug Kenny, and Martin  :-)

I'm especially chuffed with the waterproof boat cover. First time i've ever tried working with this soft plastasine type material (It's a form of plastasine that is a two part mix which doesn't shrink as it hardens). The portholes were from the 'RB' fittings range with resin bolts glued on. The boat oars were from BBQ sticks stained and gloss varnished. The authentic looking rope was from 'Miskin' models.

Here's a pic I found of my old Loyal Class Tender that I regretfully sold.

That's a nice boat you had there. I really liked your cover - any chance of a link to the product please?

Thinking about it; I like your half uncovered row boat set so much I'd be happy to have it as a little diorama.
Reminds me of an old TV program title 'Small Objects of Desire' I can't remember any program content - sounds like collectables.

Don't remember that program??? Was in two minds about having the boat fully covered, pleased now I went with only haf covering  :-) If you get stuck finding a rowboat give me a nod and I'll have a look around in my workshop!

She is coming along well, you do make a very "crisp" model.
She is looking very good.

Thanks Bob. I've had my fair share of things going wrong, problems with varnishes etc... Having overcome all that I'm pleased with how the build is going. I take great care in getting things to fit smoothly with all the corners filled with styrene filler and sanded smooth. I airbrush as much as possible, although I do give in to spray cans from time to time.

Front anchor winch finished. Only a few fittings to build and add and this section of the boat will be complete.

Fantastic level of detailing!

Of course, as a German I am not familiar with the reading habits of the RNXS sailors.
So I had to look up the Starr Hamster Story and was amazed to find it also covered in Freddie Starr's Wikipedia article.
A considerable amount of his fame must stem from this story.
I wonder if "I ate that hamster" was a kind of a running gag in the Royal Navy referring to the humble culinary skills of the cabooses on board her Majesty's ships?

Did you reduce a copy of the original SUN issue?

A good friend of mine did me the miniature copy of The Sun, not sure how he did it though? He also worked on my waterslide custom decals and ocean maps.

Last night and this morning I made up the three watertight doors (Sprayed with Tamiya Fine Primer Grey)

Hi there, your loyal is looking fantastic, I too have a similar regret to yours, I was asked by a guy that I used to work with when I was on the railways to build one for him as he had purchased the kit and was a little daunted by it, he thought I could do a better job than him, I wasn't so sure but agreed anyway!!! (got renumerated pretty well for it)....As it went the build was superb, a real pleasure and something to be proud of. It was my only build since the lesro thing I built some years previous and now I'm on the build again with my 43ft RSL (back to wood again).....I will return to grp and plastic again one day once my present model is finished (ish!!!). I would love to build a loyal again but it seems to have disappeared from radar screen.....maybe Lawrie (the ever so helpful man at the model slipway) will re-introduce it again sometime soon (hint hint!!!!!)

These decals are awesome!
(I know that "decal" probably is the wrong term but I lack the correct English vocabulary. Are they of the type you need to rub on the surface with a e.g. pen or blunt piece of metal?)
(edit: ah sorry, just reread your caption to the images in your post where you wrote "waterslide", then decal is maybe correct.)
What would your friend require as a master piece to produce them?

If you have an inkjet printer, and some matt varnish you can make your own very easily
The paper price is very reasonable too

If you dont fancy doing them yourself drop me a PM and I can probably knock you off a few
